Trivia

Although the film is rated PG-13 in America, and PG in Australia and New Zealand. The film was given the 15 rating in England, due to the film's violence and gore such as a man being shot through the neck with a arrow. A man falling into a drill and killed, and a man finding his bloody severed ear, and a man shot in the back and falling into molten steel, which is strong for a PG rated film. See more »

Not a Sci-Fi fan, but this one was awesome!
4 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

I loved it! It came on AMC and there was nothing else I cared to watch, so I left it on, thinking to go to bed shortly. I ended up watching the whole thing. It kept me rivited from beginning to end. Dennis Quaid is one of my favorite actors and I didn't know Lou Gossett was the lizard, but I guessed it from his voice. When I checked the credits at the end, I was right! He was soooo good. I can't describe it, you have to watch it. I shed a few tears toward the end. Won't tell you if they were happy or sad tears tho! You'll have to see for yourself!
